    Roy Lichtenstein’s Nude with Joyous Painting was the top lot at Christie’s global sale of the 20th century today. It made $46,242,500 in a worldwide auction that realised $420,941,042. The live streamed sale kicked off in Hong Kong before moving on to Paris, London and finally New York.

    Guillaume Cerutti, Chief Executive Officer, Christie’s remarked: “Today’s sale sends three important messages for now and for the future: despite a challenging economic environment, the demand for works of art of great quality remains very strong; the market is more global than ever, with significant activity from the Americas but also from Europe and Asia; and innovation and adaptability is key – our clients have embraced our creative presentation and sale format combining live and online experiences.”
